Carfax has named the Best Small SUVs for Towing in 2021. Unsurprisingly, three Jeeps made the cut. They are the 2021 Cherokee, Wrangler and Compass. These are true adventure vehicles with ultimate power and capability.


The Cherokee ranks first. That means it’s the best small SUV for towing. It has up to 4,500 pounds of best-in-class towing capability. You get that on Latitude LUX, Limited and Trailhawk with the 3.2-liter V6 engine, 4WD and the available Class III Trailer Tow Group. That package includes heavy duty engine cooling, a transmission oil cooler, a Class III hitch receiver, and 4- and 7-pin wiring harnesses. This Jeep can also haul 4,000 pounds with a 2.0-liter turbo engine.

2021 Jeep Cherokee White


The Compass can tow 2,000 pounds with 4WD and the available Trailer Tow Group. That includes a Class III receiver hitch, a 4-pin wiring harness, and a full-size spare time. All models are equipped with a 2.4-liter engine. For really tough terrain, there’s a class-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system. That has up to five drive modes for ultimate capability.

2021 Jeep Compass Off-Roading


The Wrangler Unlimited can tow 3,500 pounds with the Trailer Tow and Heavy-Duty Electrical Group. That comes with a 24-amp alternator, a 700-amp battery, 7- and 4-pin wiring harnesses, auxiliary switches, and a Class II receiver hitch. This SUV has three available engines. There’s a 2.0-liter turbo with ESS, a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel, and a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with eTorque or ESS. The Wrangler two-door can pull 2,000 pounds.
